Your surgeon has a new opioid-free option to treat postsurgical pain following open inguinal hernia repair

What is XARACOLL?

XARACOLL is a collagen implant that contains the drug bupivacaine, a pain medication commonly used for surgery.

XARACOLL is inserted by your surgeon during your surgery and dissolves over time releasing the pain medication bupivacaine.

XARACOLL may reduce your need for prescription opioids to manage pain following open inguinal hernia repair.

The most common adverse events in XARACOLL clinical trials included altered sense of taste (1.5% of patients) and dizziness (1.0% of patients). Talk to your doctor if you have received XARACOLL and experience these symptoms, or if you have any side effects or questions regarding side effects.

XARACOLL is used in adults to treat pain for up to 24 hours after surgery to repair a hernia in your groin. XARACOLL is placed in the body at the time of surgery.

    • Have had an allergic reaction to cow's collagen or a medication called a local anesthetic, which is used to prevent or treat pain
